Orioles slugger Chris Davis just went opposite field off Drew Smyly for a four-run homer. Or as they call it in baseball vernacular, a grand slam. It's the seventh salami of Davis' career, and his 18th bomb of the season. As you can see, the crowd at Camden Yards was pleased.

Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel quietly is having a nice year at the plate. He singled off of Jose Fernandez of the Marlins and scored in the third inning to tie the game 1-1. Hammel is hitting .273 on the season as the Cubs have a very good hitting rotation.

Clayton Kershaw, who starts for the Dodgers on Sunday night at Pittsburgh, had a 1.77 ERA, a 0.86 WHIP and a 7.7 strikeout-to-walk ratio when he won Cy Young and MVP awards in 2014. This season, Kershaw has a 1.57 ERA, a 0.67 WHIP and a 20.1 K/BB.

Chad Kuhl will make his major league debut on Sunday, potentially lining him up for a Saturday start at Oakland. His performance tonight would influence the Game Score projection; I'll try to update that afterward.

The Nationals scratched Stephen Strasburg on Sunday, which casts doubt upon his Week 13 status. Barring good news in the next 24 hours, he's too risky to keep in.

Chi Chi Gonzalez joins the Rangers' rotation on Monday at the Yankees, with a 47 projected Game Score.

Wade Miley rejoins the Mariners' rotation on Wednesday versus the Pirates, with a 50 projected Game Score. He's a "no" for me, though the Pirates' offense is cold.

Sean Manaea rejoins the A's on Wednesday versus the Giants, with a 50 projected Game Score. They're lefty heavy but I'd prefer to wait a week before activating him.
